SBaGen -- Binaural Beat Brain Wave Experimenter'sLab
Intro|Mailing lists|Downloads|FAQ|TODO
Welcome to the world of Binaural Beats!The theory behind binaural beats is that if you apply slightly different frequency sine waves to each ear, a beatingaffect is created in the brain itself, due to the brain's internal wiring. If, in the presence of these tones, you relax andlet your mind go, your mind will naturally synchronize with the beat frequency. In this way it is possible to tune thefrequency of your brain waves to particular frequencies that you have selected, using of the four bands: Delta: deepsleep, Theta: dreaming and intuitive stuff, Alpha: awake, focussed inside, and Beta: awake, focussed outside.It is also possible to produce mixtures of brain waves of different frequencies by mixing binaural tones, and in this way, with practice and experimentation, it is reportedly possible to achieve rather unusual states, such as out-of-body stuff, and more. See the books by KenEagle Feather, and theMonroeInstitutesite for more details. The Monroe Institute have apparently put 40 years of research into these techniques.Centerpointehave also done a great deal of research into binaural beats, concentrating more on improving overall well-being, health and holistic functioning rather than reaching unusual states. I recommend reading some of thearticles on their site (look under "Site Map", for example their Special Report: "How The Holosync TechnologyWorks", their FAQ and even theirslide showfor a very easy introduction).

I should add that I have only read about the more advanced and unusual uses (OOBEs and so on). My ownexperiences have not reached quite that far, but still I feel that I have benefitted immensely from using thesetechniques over the last few years: from simply getting my head clear in confusing moments, to the energy booststhat come at times, to more general emotional clearing, and occasional very intense dreams (although not quitelucid).So, SBAGEN is my utility, released as free software (under the GNU General Public Licence) for Linux, Windows,DOS and Mac OS X, that generates binaural tones in real-time according to a 24-hour programmed sequence readfrom a file. It can also be used to play a sequence on demand, rather than according to the clock, or to write a WAVfile for playing later. Pink noise, MP3 and Ogg files (since version 1.2.0) may also be mixed with the binaural beatsto provide background sounds. (Two files of randomly-looping river sounds are provided from version 1.4.0onwards). This tool is ideal for anyone who wishes to experiment with these techniques and do research into this forthemselves. (For those who would rather pay for a pre-packaged programme with support, I recommend taking alook at theCenterpointesite -- and see mydisclaimer) My original idea was to use this utility to play a programme of different tones throughout the night, hoping to improvedreaming and dream-recall, and then to bring myself up into Alpha rhythms to (hopefully) make a good start to theday. I am now using it more for shorter focussed sessions of about an hour, both during daytime and at night.However, other people have used this software in many different ways. For example, one person suffering constantpain from historical injuries appreciated the way that he could tune the frequencies very accurately to his needs tohelp him sleep better at night. Other more unusual uses have included: mixing the sounds in as part of musicalcompositions, and generating ambient sounds during live DJ sets.USE AND EXPERIMENT WITH THIS UTILITY AT YOUR OWN RISK!

However, don't hold your breath -- I have limited time rightnow, although I do hope to do a rewrite at some point in the future.
Additional information:
A bit more background on binaural beats, from my reading and experiences so far.Centerpointeappear to have put a lot of work into developing binaural beats into a balanced and well-testedprogramme. Certainly, from my own experiences with binaural beats, I can recognise the value of their approach toall this. Their site (including the newslide show) is worth looking at for a nice simple introduction to using binauralbeats for meditation and health.
